Bush Admits Spying on Americans

Added Even Later: Dear Kitty has more. I think is important to stress that this is not just one agency that has been given permission to spy on american citizens. The Pentagon has as well. My guess is that all intelligence agencies are doing so - but I can't prove it.

In the meantime, if you have done a post on the subject I would be happy to link to it...

Added Later: A good sign is that according to this survey 70% of the approximately 95000 people surveyed said Bus authorizing the NSA to spy on Americans is unconstitutional.

I Say Impeach Him:

President Bush said Saturday he personally has authorized a secret eavesdropping program in the U.S. more than 30 times since the Sept. 11 attacks and he lashed out at those involved in publicly revealing the program.

Totally disgusting. We are a nation based on the Rule of Law, not the whims oof any one person. Either it applies to everybody or it means nothing.

Really, why did you people vote for him. Was it because you enjoy the government invading your pprivacy in a massive abuse of power (beacuse don't forget, it's not just the NSA the Pentagon is doing it too)? One wonders how many other groups are spying on american citizens? One also wonders whether those resource couldn't actually be put to better use?
